Crewe swimmer Zack Beeston won a gold medal at the Halliwick National championship at Sevenoaks, Kent, recently as part of the North West team who competed against swimmers from all over the UK.
Zack was one of ten swimmers from Seahorse Swimming Club, with many making their debut at national level. Three members of the team came away with medals and Seahorse chairman, Rob Dutton, was more than pleased with the Crewe swimmers.
He said: “The overall winners from Wales set very high standards, but it was pleasing that Zack Beeston gave a fantastic performance to win a gold medal in the Boys 25m race. Tracy Jones was impressive in the Ladies 100m race to win a silver medal, while Ethan Carroll was pleased with his performance to win a bronze medal in the Boys 100m race.
All Seahorse swimmers, who made up the North West team, also deserve to be congratulated as they gave an excellent account of themselves. They competed with lots of effort and enjoyed the experience."
The other Seahorse representatives were: Dan Adcock, Carson Bruce, Shea Dutton, Charlotte Hassall, Annabelle Marriott, Amelia Pirzadeh and Sean Savage.
Seahorse, who are based at the Lifestyle Centre, are affiliated to the Halliwick Association of Swimming Therapy. The club encourages people with disabilities to gain confidence in the water, learn to swim and develop their skills.
